Default Rio Negro Biotope

Blackwater biotope is always one of my favourite tank setup. Finally decided to setup a tank to soothe my itchy finger. This will be a Rio Negro biotope either for my pair of Apistogramma Elizabethae or pair of Apistogramma Diplotaenia.

FTS :



Water is still not tainted enough. Intend to throw in more ketapang to make it into tea-colour. PH is between 5 to 5.5 as of today.

Fauna on my list to get :
Tucanoichthys tucano
Corydoras Duplicareus
Corydoras Imitator ( if space allowed )
Otocinclus Cocama aka Zebra oto

Nice! I always loved biotope setups! Would love to see the progress....

Question - how often need to change the ketapang leaves?
